ABRA Opens New Repair Center in Michigan
May 16, 2013

ABRA Auto Body & Glass has added a new franchisee in Holland, Mich., which is the company's second since entering the state nine months ago. Nate Yonker, the owner of the new franchisee, plans to add auto glass repair and replacement soon.

The repair center was formerly known as Chrispell Auto Body Repair but will now operate under the ABRA Auto Body & Glass branding.

"We are a new franchisee," says Yonker. "We are not yet offering auto glass repair and replacement, but we are planning to add auto glass soon."

Mark Wahlin, vice president of ABRA franchise development and operations, adds, "Nate purchased the ABRA franchise and will be operating out of the same Holland location as when it was Chrispell Auto Body."

ABRA now operates 49 independently-owned franchises and 124 company-owned locations for a total of 173 repair centers in 17 states.

"Our growth strategy is ambitious and we are laser focused on our goals," says Duane Rouse, president and CEO of ABRA. "We are in the process of delivering on our promise to better serve our customers and insurance partners across the country."
